We Believe

  •  In the unity of God existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is the Creator, the King, Ruler and Sustainer of all things.
  • In the divine inspiration and entire trustworthiness of the Scriptures. It is the supreme authority over every area of our lives as individuals and our life as a church community.
  • In the existence of absolute truth that is normative for all human beings and not relative but is rooted in the existence of God the Creator who as an infinitely personal being is both sovereign and good and who assesses and judges what human beings do with their lives and in their relationships with one another.
  • In man and woman created in the image of God, in high dignity, now under God’s condemnation for their rebellion against his good and just authority. Since the Fall, we are both guilty of and polluted by sin, which has affected us spiritually, intellectually, psychologically, socially and physically.
  • In Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who became human to live a flawless life and die a painful death in our place. Through his life, death and bodily resurrection, Jesus accomplished a decisive victory over sin and established his Kingdom among us.
  • In the necessary work of the Holy Spirit to make the work of Jesus Christ effective in the life of the individual. The Spirit grants us repentance toward God and faith in Jesus. We escape the penalty and power of sin through faith in Jesus alone and not through any goodness or moral effort of our own.
  • In the personal and triumphant return of Jesus Christ to this earth for the final judgment and the consummation of His Kingdom.

What We Value

We value our place in the community of Whitefield and our church’s 162 year heritage of bearing witness to Jesus Christ and the new life he gives those who trust in Him as Savior and Lord.

We value the people of Whitfield and the North Country and seek by our commitment to Jesus Christ to bring only good, help and hope to our town and region.

We value the freedoms our nation and community enjoy and realize that matters of faith cannot be coerced or forced upon people. 

We value the freedom to speak of and share with others the good news of the historic Christian faith and welcome questions, inquiries, discussion and even friendly disagreement. 

We value the grace that God has given to us in Jesus Christ and with humble hearts we do not view ourselves as better or superior to others but rather our desire to speak to our community about the truth and love of God revealed in the Lord Jesus Christ is motivated by love for people and the glory of God.

We, therefore value building bridges of communication with our community, while at the same time being clear that our mission is to represent Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and offer with truth, grace and humility the life, meaning and hope that knowing Him brings to people’s lives.
